Busted Stuff
Haha, look at that girl
Woman...

Not enough, never too much
The woman look just like love
Rolling stone gathers no moss
But leave a trail of busted stuff

I know she's gonna leave my broken heart behind her
I take what she's giving up
I know she's gonna leave this broken man behind her
I take what she's giving up

Sweet sugar lips push from the hips
Woman looks just like love
Without a care she floats above
She got me down here looking up

I know she's gonna leave my broken heart behind her
I take what she's giving up
I know she's gonna leave my broken heart behind
Yeah, yeah...

She me one
She my one
She my one
Little love
When she move
She move so cool
She make me feel just like a fool
But inside where the devil hides
Women looks just like love

I know she's gonna leave my broken heart behind
I take what she's giving up, oh
I know she's gonna leave my broken heart behind her now
I get what she's giving up, oh

I know she's gonna leave her broken man behind
Hey, yeah...

She my one
She my one
She the one for me
Yeah...

I know she's gonna leave my broken heart behind
Yeah, yeah...

She my one...back to top
Grey Street
Oh, just sitting while she listens
She says I don't need this place
It seems a million years she's stuck here
But says nothing of what she thinks

She thinks, hey,
How did I come to this?
I dreamt like anybody else one night
I would be a beautiful princess.

But then the roads in the park fall
And then she rode the line in
And the colors mix together to grey
And break me out

Oh, when I'm indifferent
She prays to God most every night
Although she swears he doesn't listen
There's hope in her that he just might

She says, I pray
But then my prayer fall on deaf ears
I'm supposed to take it all myself
To get out of this place.

She feels the lumps in the heart fall
And she rose up in the back
She hears the cars scream out from outside
And she whispers sometimes about this
But the colors mix together to grey
And wake me up

Oh, he grows up living
He says take what you can from your dreams
Make them real as anything
It takes the work out of the courage

She said, please,
There's a crazy man standing outside my door
I live on the corner of a dead end street
At the end of the world.

Oh, and the rocks out in the heart fall
And she dreams her way to life
And she knows no one will lift her
So she might as well do it herself

And then bummed out and worried
Of leaving city life
But all the colors mix together to grey
On grey street
On grey street
To grey street

Oh, when it comes down in your loving
Oh, well then baby it's right
You say you think you are nothing
No one else will do it for you
Reach up and grab hold of the sunlight
When you are waiting for what's right
You're holding on your heaven
Won't leave you, yeah, yeah...

And the colors mix together to grey
Wake me up, wake me up, wake me up
To grey.back to top
Where Are You Going
Where are you going
With the long face pulling down
Don't hide away like an ocean
But you can see, but you can smell and the sound
Of your waves coming down
I am no superman not at all
But I have no answers for you
I am no hero, and that's for sure
But I do know one thing
Where you go, is where I want to be
Where are you going?
Where do you go?
Are you looking for answers
For reasons under the stars
If along the way, you are growing weary
You can rest with me until a brighter day
I am no superman, that's for sure
And I have no answers, yeah
I am no hero, oh don't you know~
But I do know one thing,
Where you are is where I belong
Where you go, I do know, is where I belong
Where are you going, with your beautiful face looking down
Don't hide away
You are like an ocean
That I can't see, but I can smell and the sound
Of your waves coming down
I am no superman, that's for sure
I have no answers for you
I am no hero, oh not at all
I do know one thing, where you are is where I belong
Where you are is where I want to be.back to top
You Never Know
Sitting still as stone watching - watching
People walking by you wondering why
No one ever stops to talk or thinks about it – if they ever did
What if God shuffled by?

One day we might see
Doing not a thing
Breathing just to breathe
We might find some reason

But rushing around seems what’s wrong with the world
Don’t lose the dreams inside your head
They’ll only be there til you’re dead
Dream

Lying on the roof counting
The stars that fill the sky I wonder if
Someone in the heavens looking back down on me – I’ll never know
So much space to believe

Funny when you’re small
The moon follows the car
There’s no one but you see
Hey, the moon is chasing me

I worried if I looked away she’d be gone
Don’t lose the dreams inside your head
They’ll only be there til you’re dead
Dream

Walking through the wood
No cares in the world
The world has come to play
She’s all mine just for a day

There’s not a moment to lose in the game
Don’t let the troubles in your head
Steal too much time you’ll soon be dead
So play

All fall down
It won’t be so long now
Out of the darkness comes light like a flash
You think you can you think you can
Sometimes that is the problem
Dream little darling dream

Spinning on the wind
The leaf fell from the limb

But everyday should be a good day to die
Oh all fall down
It won’t be too long now
Every fire dies
I find it hard to explain how I got here
I think I can I think I can
Then again I will falter
Dream little darling dream

Spinning on the wind
The leaf fell from the limbback to top
Captain
Crazy as I may,
Make my way through this world,
Oh, it's for no one but me to say,
What direction I should turn in now.

Cause I am the captain of this ship,
Wanting eyes and kissing lips.
The same as it was,
And will remain until I'm done and gone.

Strange, but it seems,
There's mutiny brewing inside of me now.
I don't want your pity,
Just the promise that I'll be alright.

Cause I am the captain of this ship,
Curious hands and fingertips.
The same as it was,
And will be until I'm gone.

Oh, I know I'm a dreamer,
Still think it's strange?
I won't be here for long.
Oh, I know that I feel,
Oh, wait and go again, again.

Oh, look, I'm buried,
Like a cancer eating away inside of me.
I don't want your pity,
Only the promise that I'll be okay now.

But I am the captain of this ship,
Curious hands and fingertips.
The same as it was before here,
Here, back after all.

Why should I be hypnotized,
By the promise of a long life?
Why should I hold hope,
In tiny, tiny dribbles that glide by?
Why should I lean on everything... upon
I won't be here long....

Oh, I know I'm a dreamer,
Still seems a truth.
I won't be long for here.
Oh, it's so, but I think I lay this,
On now your lips.
I'm drowning.

I am the captain of... oh... but, I'll be okay after allback to top
Raven
Lies and reason you give
Too much is not enough
Leave, what you see leave alone
Someone else to go

Romance holds you to tea, yeah
Sip it like you're typical
My love is what you make of it
Brothers and sisters, it's not enough...
Not enough

Talk, call, talking of leading the way
Won't ya give any lie?
Of all the ways
Won't ya lie with me?

Man, I've no raven to see here
Flies the blackest way
What you give when you get nothing
Is everything you give

All been tossed away
Read, light your morning candles
Make your way
All wise men today grieve
It knows no better thing

All I leave here, a way to send you all down, down, down
All my worries is where the girl will be found, found, found
All my worries of all those things that I dreamed and dreamed and dreamed
All I leave is, I have to say
It's nothing more than my point of view

It's hard and cold tonight
You're warming by a fire
Oh, sweet juice
Drink tonight
Take me while I'm out

No, no raven to see here
It imitates beauty well
Black bird from a dark heaven
Oh, won't you keep living a lie

All God tossed away
Read while you know
You know things fade to grey
Oh, what came of grace
Oh, the morning and the rain

All my worries warn enough to roam, roam, roam
Fade away here, the girl will go round and round and round
Hey, love...
What was the greatest thing you
Moments in the cold rain
Here to say there's nothing great that you wouldn't do

Fly, raven...
Won't you guide me?
Oh, what's the reason?
Won't you guide me?
Wait, now, what is the raven?
Won't you come to me?
What you did with the same grace at all
Won't you keep living a lie

All been tossed away
Read all you'll have ever known
I believe
All I know today
Read all to believeback to top
Grace Is Gone
Neon shines through smoky eyes tonight,
It's 2 am, I'm drunk again,
It's heavy on my mind, it's heavy on my mind.

I could never love again,
So much as I love you.
Where you end, where I begin,
Is like a river going through.

Take my heart, take my eyes,
Cause I'll need them no more.
If never again they'll fall upon,
The one I so adore.

Excuse me please, one more drink.
Could you make it strong,
Cause I don't need to think.
She broke my heart,
My grace is gone.
Another drink and I'll move on.

One drink to remember,
And another to forget.
How could I ever dream to find a love like this again?
One drink to remember, another to forget...

Excuse me please, one more drink.
Would you make it strong,
Cause I don't need to think.
She broke my heart,
My grace is gone.
Another drink and I'll move on.
One more drink and I'll move on.

You think of things impossible,
Then the sun refuse to shine.
I woke with you beside me,
Your cold hand lay in mine.

Excuse me please, one more drink.
Could you make it strong,
Cause I don't need to think.
She broke my heart,
My grace is gone.
Another drink and I'll go...

Excuse me please, one more drink.
Could you make it strong,
Cause I don't need to think.
She broke my heart, my grace is gone.
Another drink and I'll move on,
One more drink and I'll move on.
One more drink my grace is gone.back to top
Kit Kat Jam
Hey, golden girl, with your hair swinging down.
All of this love you have going round,
What will you do when the gold turns to grey?
Have you thought now?
Well, what the hey, give us some.

Cover yourself with the safety of lies,
You'll find it's easier til you face dying.
Oh, sweetest smile in a confident,
Come along, all of this longing you will done.

Up and out, goes to your heart,
And you will make yourself higher up, little fool.
And love and go down and pay to go on.
We'll lie on water, and oh,
On the way back I slip on the ceiling.

Caught you just then, hands were in the cookie jar.
How can we share when you sneak up and go?
I've no intention of losing by beard.
How they design and then we go again.

Oh, god, them horses were racing,
And, oh, bring me down.
Could put humpty dumpty together again.
Now the wall won't hold anyone,
I walk in the side.
Wait and reach your lady,
This is the short one,
Short way to lay in.

Oh, let her leave my hand,
I've given up.
Whoa, how is too late now.

Oh, free, just... were you lying?back to top
Digging a Ditch
I'm digging a ditch
Where madness lives
I'm digging a ditch
Where my silence lives
I'm diggin a ditch and when I am through
Digging this ditch I'll dig one for you
Digging a ditch
As black as cold
Digging a ditch
Where I can hide my soul
Digging a ditch
Where my secrets stay

[the newer version, from summer 2000]

Unto your dreaming
When you're alone
Unplug the tv
Turn off your phone
Get heavy on with digging your ditch

Cause I'm digging a ditch where madness gives
Digging a ditch where silence lives
Digging a ditch for when I'm old
Digging a ditch where stories told
Where all these troubles
That weigh down on me will rise
Unto your dreaming
When you're alone
Where all these worries
Weigh heavy on my heart
Will rise, will rise, will rise...

Unto your dreaming
When you're alone
Unplug the tv
Turn off your phone
Get heavy on with digging your ditch

Cause I'm diggin a ditch where madness gives
Digging a ditch where silence lives
Digging a ditch and when I'm through
Digging this ditch I'll dig in for you
Where all these disappointments
That grow angry out of me will rise

Unto your dremaing
When you're alone
Not what you're sure be or what you've become
Just getting heavy on with digging your ditch

Cause I'm digging a ditch where madness gives
I'm digging a ditch where silence lives
Digging a ditch and when I'm through
Digging a ditch I'll give one you
Where all these disappointments
That grow angry out of me will rise

Unto your dreaming
When you're alone
Where all these habits
That weigh down on me will die
Will die, will die, will die...

Unto your dreaming
When you're alone
Unplug the tv
Turn off your phone
Get heavy on with digging your ditchback to top
Big Eyed Fish
Story of a man,
Who decided not to breathe.
Turned red, purple, then blue.
Colorful indeed.
No matter how his friends begged,
Well, he would not concede,
And now he's dead.
You see, cause everybody knows,
You got to breathe.

But, oh god,
Under the weight of life,
Things seem brighter on the other side...
Lighter on the other side...

Another one: see this monkey sitting on a tree,
One day, decided to climb down,
And run off to the city.
Look at him now, tired and drunk
And living on the street.
As good as dead.
You see, a monkey should know,
Stay up your tree.

But, oh god,
Under the weight of life,
Things seem brighter on the other side.
Oh, god,
But under the weight of life,
Things seem much brighter on the other side.

No way, no way, no way.... out... of here...

Another one: a big eyed fish,
Yeah, swimming in the sea,
Oh, how he dreamed.
He wants to be a bird,
Swooping, diving through the breeze.
One day, he caught a big blue wave,
Up onto the beach,
And now he's dead.
You see, a fish's dream,
Should stay in the sea.

But, oh god,
Under the weight of life,
Things seem brighter on the other side.

No way... no way...no way...out... of here...

No way out of life.back to top

Bartender, you see
The wine that's drinking me
Came from the vine that strung judas from the devil's tree
It's roots deep, deep in the ground

Bartender, you see
The wine that's drinking me
Came from the vine that strung judas from the devil's tree
It's roots deep, deep in the ground
In the ground...

I'm on bended knees
Oh, bartender, please

I'm on bended knees
Father, please

When I was young, I didn't dream about it
Now I think about it all the time

I'm on bended knees
Oh, bartender, please
